Good product for the money.

This is the second Rtic i have bought. I have a larger i think a 45. Always liked that cooler so when i need a smaller one i went with Rtic again. Precool stuff you put in it and I’ve last for days. As long as your not getting in it every 5 minutes. No cooler will hold ice if your in it every 5 minutes. Would have gave it 5 stars but i have the same issue with both my coolers. The rubber legs come out of the cooler pretty easy. And my 20 the handle comes out of the holes pretty easy if you grab by one side to slide it out of truck or something. Doesn’t take much for the handle to pull out the hole and scratch the side of the cooler up pretty bad. Nothing major that i wouldn’t buy another or make me decide to spent twice as much on another brand just like it.

What an upset

I have many different sizes of the RTIC, I’m a huge RTIC fan, but this RTIC20 was a complete let down! Hurts to say and admit. The “RTIC” Decal is a sticker, not like the other bigger coolers were they used hardener paint. Upon arrival it was already peeling off before I even got to use it. So much for Over Built, Not over Priced...

I got a 65 that really performs well, thats why I bought this 20. It appears to be the same quality build, just a smaller unit. It should be good forever.

Best cooler I’ve ever owned!

I have the 52, I have most of the cups and every single thing I have from this company has absolutely blown my mind with the holding cold drink and keeping them that way!

Best coolers made. Durable, reliable, functional. One question...when will they come in red?

RTIC 20 As good as the “competition”

Perfect size for every outdoor day trip! Keeps those Fine Pilsners the perfect temp when ice fishing. Makes a great seat as well as a cutting board. The handle is my only issue. It popped out on one side but was simple to pop back in. Keeps ice for-ev-er when used for a beverage fridge in the house. Can’t beat the price! Should have bought one sooner and not overpaid for that other brand. Makes a great gift too!

Handle is too thin

RTIC 20 Handle is too thin. Too Small to comfortably carry and looks a-little cheap The rest of cooler looks great and appears to be high quality

Weekend warrior

I love the RTIC 20 and it perfect for a weekend at the softball fields. Plenty of room for food and drinks. Cooler no where near holding ice for 10 days in Florida heat, but good for a weekend.

Wow product and service.

After mistakenly ordering the 52 quart cooler and realizing it was too massive for my little sailboat and returning it, I eventually decided on the 20. Both products seem exceptionally well-made and the delivery was on time as expected. The return of the first cooler was extremely easy and the person at RTIC that assisted me, was very helpful and kind. Excited to use it on the boat this summer. So pleased that I am writing my first review for a product online.!

Nice cooler

Wanted one for a while now. Rugged and well built. A bit of concern about the handle. It doesn’t really stay in place when carrying. Just bent to stick on the holes in the side of the cooler. Jury is out on the handle.

Happy with Order

The cooler came just as expected, a good solid build and sturdy look. It is slightly heavier than expected but this is no issue and is likely a result of its sturdiness. The reason I did not give 5 stars is because the handle on my cooler came bent. However customer support is taking care of the issue and will send me another one.

Best Dad Christmas gift

My Dad loved his Christmas gift this year ! This size of cooler is the perfect gift for anyone that likes road trips or who is in the construction field like my dad. I know he will enjoy this cooler keeping his water cold this summer. It’s a good size for my mom’s suv for when they take road trips again too. I think RTIC will be my go to gift place for my parents from now on.

RTIC 20 Hard Cooler

The cooler is rugged, sturdy, well built an affordable. With a solid handle and it’s ability to keep things cold for days, what’s not to like? Great value, great cooler.

I left a cooler full of beer all week outside and it was still cold when I got to it. This is the best cooler. It can fit a full case of beer

Great cooler!

I got the 20 and I love it! Holds plenty of drinks for my family of 4 for an evening or a weekend. Ice retention is great. I also like the size. It stays in the back of my truck but easily fits in the cab if I feel the need to lock it up. I researched many coolers and am so glad I got the rtic!

Great Cooler

The Best!!

The best cooler we have ever had. Kept ice in there for 5 days on the road through west Texas. One "however" one of the feet popped off. Is that Normal??? Insulation fell out. We put it back on but HMMMMM
